    Ok, i tried searching but havent seen anyone with the same problem i have.

    I open iSync, and it pops up in the app bar, then dissappears and automatically shuts itself down. I downloaded the 1.5 installer from Apple, and it still does the same thing. Anyone know why?

    Look in <your user name>/Library/Preferences. There should be two files in there called com.apple.isync.plist and com.apple.isync.registry.plist. With iSync closed, try dragging those to your Desktop. Then open iSync and see if it still crashes.

    Do you have com.apple.isync.plist? If so, just try moving that one and see what happens when you open iSync.

    Can you try creating a new user account and seeing if the problem is replicated there?

    Do you have the right version for your version of OS X?

    Good call. The latest version of iSync (for OS X 10.4) is 2.3, not 1.5. What version of OS X are you running?

    If you're on Tiger as you say, you should be running iSync 2.3, which came out as part of the 10.4.7 update.

    iSync crashes

    Hey!

    I tried moving .plist files to desktop, moving SyncServices folder, and many others things...and at the end, I tried duplicating iSync.app (right click on iSync.app , select "Duplicate" and it creates iSync copy.app) and it worked!!!

    I'm 99% sure that the problem began the day I installed Flip4Mac on my MacBook. Thanks Craig for your help!!!
